Loooooved this. I loved the tone, the writing style, the setting, the characters, but most of all, I loved the way it made me feel. It started off beautifully with Logan and Mama Wend coming back from living in all fifty states. They've had their adventure and now it's time to return home, but although not everyone is as welcoming to Logan as some, the eighteen-year-old protagonist doesn't mind because home is where Mama Wend is, and she raised him right.
Verona is going through her reckoning (her story is the novella prequel) but when she sees something she can't ignore, she ends up on the shore... with legs. With nowhere else to go and no one to turn to, she finds her solace in Logan Clarke, and what starts off as something full of wariness and suspicion soon turns into something a lot better than either protagonist could have imagined.
I really enjoyed this book. I love mermaids and small towns, so reading this wasn't hard to do. Told from Verona and Logan's POV, the story makes you wish you too were with them, experiencing everything they are. Logan was a refreshing male character with sincere manners and although he was still quite a hellion with some of the things that he couldn't handle, I still thought him totally swoon worthy. Verona was adorable and I loved her sweet exuberance. She and Logan were such two different personalities but their inner feels and what they found important were the same, and I more than enjoyed seeing them come together. The addition of Verona being a fish out of water, plus the danger that comes with being a Mer on land, and the blooming cuteness and usual drama of teen life left me more than satisfied. I absolutely loved this.
So what can I say about this story, it was sweet and innocent. I liked this story, it gave me the feels. I loved Grandma Wend she was such a sweet classic grandma that loved fully. Logan was sort of broody at first , the way he treated Verona wasn't to great. I guess I get it this stranger just washes up on shore the way the world is nowadays she could most likely be taking advantage. Logan got over his broodish ways though and realized that the weird girl was just weird so he was able to show how cool he was.
I liked the sweetness of this story not so much heavy, there was some heavy towards the end but I enjoyed the light heavy moments.There wasn't as much romance as I would have liked, I did think there would be more . She did have a decision to make though did she return to her clan or live among the humans. I was actually surprised by the outcome, I thought she would chose different but alas I was wrong. Find out the ending read the story!
I will admit, it's not quite the romance I was expecting it to be. There is a slow build in romantic tension, but it was almost subtle enough that I doubted its presence would make itself known. I know for sure the next book in the series will have a chance to build on it. In fact, there are a few plot threads that were started but I found them leading into the sequel, so I'll have to try my best to be patient and wait for more.
Speaking of more, if you haven't read the prequel, Scales, you probably should. It's a short story about Verona's life before land, and is hinted at strongly throughout Salt. It's certainly not required in order to follow along with the story, but it adds to the overall story. And it's... FREE! Seriously, nothing is stopping you. Go get it, now.
I absolutely love this series! Verona is such an amazing character. Her story is a fresh take on the mermaid tale. The introduction of new character Logan opens up a who,e new world for Verona. A world that draws you in, and you can immerse yourself in. I found it hard to put this book down - so many things happening and Ms. Creeden is very gifted and keeping her readers guessing where the story will go. I can't wait to read the next book in the series! Next summer can't come close enough.
On a side note... I pre-ordered this book on iBooks as soon as I finished reading the first book, Scales. I want to thank the author for the opportunity to read an ARC, but this book is most definitely one I want to keep in my collection, and read again and again.
